    EDIT: and dyno sheet. At 5750 you can see the power drops off fast. Floating the valves at that point..

    Could be, but you are running a larger turbo than me so who knows. I will have it back on the rollers next Monday, so we will see if the springs fixed the issue.

    How many times do you need to turn it to add a few pounds?

    Not cool. Was hoping for some huge numbers because alot of guys are wanting to go turbo now, including me thinking about doing it. Can't wait to have you get it putting down 600+

    Removing the engine tonight, checked out cylinder 3 with a bore scope and saw a very small chip missing near the ring. Replacement piston and rings are on order. Also We think there was an issue with the head gasket as well, a little bit of oil was found in the coolant. Upgrading to head studs, too much boost for stock bolts. A quote from my brother "Bob, you need to stop being a cheap ass, im getting tired pulling this car apart."
